Son of the Bronx makes his usual great contribution to charitable causes (like this blog) and to Tylenol sales in greater Ponte Vedra Beach, posting Golf Channel's ratings from November 24-December 1st 2013.
And in another reminder for PGA Tour players who get chippy with courtesy car drivers all because they labor under the delusion that what they do is important and watched by millions, look no further than another week of steady Big Break ratings and even some healthy numbers for re-runs of October's World Long Drive Championship.
More eye-opening is the second place finish by a movie re-run on Thanksgiving morning when people were clearly so desperate to avoid talking to family that they watched a golf-themed film (.1, 156,000). The film drew a bigger number than all but one round of the PGA Tour's "wraparound" events this fall.
The Wednesday-Saturday night airings of the Australian Open (listed as "Misc. Tournament") also did well, with Saturday's finale drawing 122,000 viewers for the live final round telecast, with more via the subsequent re-airing. And all a smidgen of the rights fees Golf Channel pays for lesser performing PGA Tour events!
